    Dear noffie

    the grill is in the top oven not the bottom so how does the thermostate in the bottom have any relevance to the grill? regards merc 2

Creda reflection double oven had the same issue, both ovens work but the grill was either hot or cold, no temp control. I changed the thermostat first, due to being a novice and not fully understanding how things worked. it didn't help so I have changed the grill regulator,( bit that the knob fits onto) and it has solved the issue. I expect this to be the same with most top oven and grill combinations with the oven working but the grill only being hot or off.

HI there the top oven and the bottom oven have separate thermostats that is why you are having this problems because the bottom oven thermostat has failed thus making it not regulate the heat. to repair this you need a new thermostat regulator i hope this has helped you noffie....

Rcd trips after 1 minute of using top oven or grill


It could be the top oven overheat thermostat going faulty. With something like this the only way to find it is to take the oven to bits and use a test meter to see what is causing the problem. Just to let you know, on the 720, the grill works independent of the timer/clock. So if both the top oven and grill are generating the problem, that is where I would start to look.

Both lights on the top oven work when using it as an oven but when using it as a grill, they don't! There doesn't appear to be any other fault as the oven and grill still work fine. Any thoughts...


The unit is working as it should. The top oven lights will only come on when the top oven control knob is turned on. The grill control does NOT turn the lights on. If you want to see what you are grilling, then you should turn the top oven control on to its first position. This works even if the grill is operating.

Hi Guys I have a Stoves 720EF Double Oven and Grill. Whilst halfway through cooking some sausages on the grill this evening, the grill suddenly stopped working (plus the LED for the grill knob showing...


If the element and the indicator light both stopped working this suggests a problem with the power supply for the grill control. Either the grill control has no power going to it or it is faulty and requires replacement. If you are not sure what you are doing you'd better get a tech. to look at it, it can be fairly complicated for the untrained person.

Stoves 720 EF Electric Double Oven Model No 059040415 -when you turn the grill knob there is no light and it doesn't do anything at all - the grill is not working. However, the element must be working as...


First things first. The oven element is totally separate to the grill element. The clock has to have a time set for either the top or bottom oven to work, whereas the grill will work without the clock being set.
The control knob for the top oven is the ONLY control that will turn the top oven lights on, the grill does not turn the lights on. ( If you want to watch your toast, you have to turn the top oven switch on to the first setting as well as operating the grill control).
To prevent the grill being operated with the door shut, there is a micro-switch on the door hinge that allows the grill to operate ONLY when the door is down. The grill control also does not illuminate unless the door is down. There are two options on the grill control - right or left. One way is the inner element only and the other is both inner and outer ones.
So if you have done all that and it still doesn't work, then the micro-switch could be faulty.
Best of luck

Zanussi electric double oven. Top oven not working.


It sounds like a faulty thermostat, because when you turn the thermostat on it should supply the oven element and the neon light, so even if the element is faulty, the neon light should still come on regardless of the element working or not.
Hope this helps.

Because I haven't got a manual, and the oven is slightly worn, I would like to know what the symbol at the eleven o'clock position on the top oven control knob means. There are 2 symbols that appear to be...


There are two controls for the top oven and grill.

The far left one is purely for the oven and oven lights. The middle control of the three on the panel is for the grill. The grill will only work when the front is down, there is a micro switch that controls this.

The grill control is a dual action control. Turn it one way and it is the full grill, turn it the other and it is only the inner element. Left is the small grill, right is the larger, full grill. Oven lights do not come on with the grill control, you have to turn the lights on with the oven control.

The oven has a small element so takes a long time to heat up.

If you need a copy of the handbook, supply an email address and you can have access to my BT digital vault where a copy is stored.

Hotpoint cooker, grill doesn't work but top oven does


If the elements 'look' okay, they probably are. The 'infinite control switch' is probably the problem. With out the use of a meter, it's guess work. Unless you can see a connection problem.

I have a stoves 720EF Heritage - electric - the top grill is not working - does it have a reset button?


No, there is no reset button. However, the grill will only work when the front is down as there is a microswitch which operates to provide connectivity when it is in this position. This is to stop the grill overheating. The switch could have gone faulty.
Does the top oven work ok?
When you operate the grill there are two options, part or full. Are they both failing? Does the cooling fan switch on when either grill is operated?

Stoves 720ef grill not working


The grills appear to be independant of each other. Does the oven still work and the oven light come on?

Depending on your answer it could be that the Top Oven Switch has gone faulty. The Grill Regulator and the Switch work together on the top oven. To get at both you will need to take the top of the oven off.
